The lemon bar I’ve been making for the past 3 weeks straight. Tastes unreal.Hey all! It’s been a while since I’ve made a keto recipe so delicious I needed to share it I had a ton of lemons from my boss’s tree at home and went to town making one of the best and easiest desserts I’ve ever had. I’ve tweaked the original recipe a bit over the 4 batches I’ve made and I have to say it’s so hard to go wrong with these bars. Hope you enjoy!
Keto Lemon Bars recipe that is hands down our favorite low carb dessert right now. Made with simple ingredients and packed with delicious lemon flavor. Bonus! They are gluten-free.
- 2 1/4 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup low carb powdered sweetener + more if you want to powder the tops of the lemon bars
- 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil for dairy-free diet, melted
- 4 whole eggs
- 3/4 cup erythritol
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice apprx 2 lemons
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 Tablespoons coconut flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Prepare 9×13 pan by greasing with cooking spray or butter.
In a small bowl mix together almond flour and powdered sweetener. Add melted butter and combine with your hands to mix together until it forms into a dough. Push dough into bottom of greased 9×13 pan.
Bake for 15-17 minutes.
Mix eggs, erythritol, lemon juice, baking powder and coconut flour in a blender. Blend for 10 seconds, scrape the sides and blend for 5 more seconds. Pour filling mixture into baked crust.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until filling has a crust and bounces back in the center when touched. Sprinkle additional low carb powdered sweetener over bars at this time. Allow lemon bars to cool 10-15 minutes before slicing.
Please not that there are 36 grams of sugar alcohol in the entire recipe and should be accounted for if you calculate the net carbs. We explain this a little more in detail in the above post.
made these today and the taste is pretty good
Can I sub coconut flour? My boss loves lemon bars it is allergic to almonds.
Made these today and they don’t look ANYTHING like that picture. The pan size is much too big for the recipe. The bottom burned before I even put the lemon filling in. Therefore it burned even more when I had to put it back in to cook the filling. Speaking of the filling, it was as thin as icing on a cake bc the recipe is too small for a 9 x 13 pan. Will definitely try a smaller pan
I had great success with the recipe as is! Yes the batter is thin, but it bakes as directed and turned out SO good! Just like the real thing! Thanks for the recipe!!!
Agreed, I should’ve read this comment before I made the bars 🙁
I definitely agree with you. The pan is way too big for the tiny bit of feeling it makes. Even with making the pan an 8 x 8. The feeling won’t look as thick as the picture that was posted. Very disappointed in this and now I don’t think I’ll follow any of the recipes again. What a waste of my ingredients.
How many bars does this make?
I’m thinking some of you people need to follow directions more carefully. This recipe turned out great!
